Your Mind Controls Everything

Your Mind Controls Everything Your Mind Controls Everything

 

Am I a coach? Yes! Do I love eating healthy & working out? Duh! Am I motivated to most days? For the most part, sometimes I still feel like my old 200 lb self though! Today was NOT one of those days though where i felt motivated, just being real. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed, wanted to keep sleeping, was beating myself up for everything imaginable. Seriously, your mind controls everything.

But you know what? I’m SO thankful for Jesus to get me through anything, for my accountability partner, & to be a part of the online groups that I’m leading because they help keep me on track! And guess what else? None of these people I knew before, my accountability partner I didn’t know, yet they’re the most amazing group of people ever! People are losing the amount of weight I’ve lost (60 lbs) in just MONTHS, whereas it took me a little over a year because I didn’t have accountability or support. Your mind controls everything.

I took some extra time feeding my mind with positivity because we determine what thoughts come in to our minds & stay. Like Pastor Steven says, make a decision what you let in & out of your life so you don’t let certain thought patterns control your mind. I’m so thankful for my group & my Jesus today!! Your mind controls everything, feed it something positive.

In today’s video I wanted to address just how your mind controls everything. I actually made this video for my group, but wanted to share it with y’all as well icon smile Your Mind Controls Everything

So let’s watch today’s message on how your mind controls everything.

How to Renew Your Life

how to renew body mind soul How to Renew Your Life

Renewal is something that we typically think of around New Year’s or maybe even Spring, when Summer is quickly approaching. For so many years, I could care less about taking care of my health, body, mind, or soul. I was far away from God, overweight, depressed, & in a dark place. What I’ve learned is that it all starts with your MIND. Once you overcome your mind, you can overcome anything.The body, mind, & soul all work together. I know that can seem very difficult, believe me. I still struggle with it myself sometimes, even after losing 60 lbs & maintaining that the past 4 years. But, I want to show you that you CAN & just how to renew your  life.

When I began my weight loss journey, I had a lot of trouble getting my mind right about it. I tried so many things & continued failing. Then one day I finally figured out what my WHY was – what  made me want to get healthy – & that pushed me along. It started in the mind. I learned how to better control my mind. This was just the beginning of my journey & I’ve figured out so much since then about how they all connect, so I want to share it with all of you. I want to show you how to renew your life.

I’m sure by now you’ve heard me talking about my Healthy for the Holidays group that starts next Monday. I’m very excited about helping people take control of their mind & their life. I  lived so much of my life in fear & depression. Now that I’ve been released from that, I want to help you all break those chains of bondage that we are not meant to live in. God has a bigger plan for your life, you don’t have to feel this way any more.

It’s All About Environment

6ff0d01348346ae26019ee614fff9636 Its All About Environment

If you’re going to change anything, it all starts with YOU. And your environment hugely contributes to everything about your life. Your thoughts, your moods, your motivation levels, your beliefs, your confidence, and I could keep going. As most of you know, for half of my life I was overweight, dark, depressed, far away from God, and disrespected myself and others. I had been yearning for a change in my life and then one day I finally realized I had to change my environment in order for that to happen. Seriously, i’s all about environment.

Here are just a few things in your environment that could be affecting your life:

  • People
  • Foods
  • Music/TV
  • Books/Reading
  • Living Space

Now I want to tell you why each of these things could affect you.

  • People – This one was the toughest one for me to change, but it had the biggest impact. When I gained all my weight, my friends all stopped talking to me and started making fun of me. I went from “popular” to an outcast basically. So, I made all new friends and it was with the wrong crowd. After associating myself with the wrong crowd for so many years, even in to my adulthood, I realized that a lot of these friends were not helping me move forward in life. They were negative, had unhealthy lifestyles, liked to party, didn’t have big dreams, & were just lazy. As much as I loved them, I had to distance myself from them because it was having a negative impact on me. Once I did that, my weight loss became easier and I started surrounding myself with people who believed and supported my big crazy dreams. It’s all about environment.
  • Foods - This one is pretty obvious, but seriously if you’re keeping unhealthy foods in your living space that is just going to derail you if you’re trying to be healthy. When you’re eating unhealthy foods this can affect your mood and how you feel about yourself. Which will then in return affect your thoughts and all other areas. Body, mind, and soul all work together. Eating a healthy balanced diet will give you energy and make you happy. It’s all about environment.
  • Music/TV - I basically stopped watching TV earlier this year and stopped listening to mainstream music as well. There is so much negativity out there and there are so many females on TV that us women will compare ourselves to. Actresses don’t look like your average person, the news has nothing positive to share, and TV is a waste of time and energy for the most part. And music is about the same. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Justin Timberlake, Taylor Swift, and Katy Perry just to name a few. But, I blast Elevation Worship music all day er day! It’s all about environment.
  • Books/Reading - This year I started reading a lot of personal development. This was something that was absolutely foreign to me that I had never done before. Do you know how much this has changed and impacted my life? I have grown so much as a person and feel like I am growing all the time, which in result will help me to change my life and others. If you’re reading the news or other negative things, you’re likely to not be as happy and positive, or be growing. It’s all about environment.
  • Living Space - This one is super important because your home/apartment is where you live. I’m really huge in to this and I do pay more for my rent than most people would want to pay. But, since I work from home I want to love where I live. It’s peaceful to me. I also have lots of pictures with motivational quotes and pictures of family and friends that make me happy. I make sure to keep my apartment clean and tidy because if I don’t my mind can’t function as easily. It’s all about environment.

So if you’re looking to make a change in your life, take a look about your environment. Since I’ve done this, my entire life has transformed. If I surrounded myself in a negative environment like I used to then I have no doubt I would be more tempted to go back to my old ways. It’s all about environment.

I know a lot of people out there struggle with this self  , so PLEASE re-tweet & share this post so that I can help others! icon smile Its All About Environment

Remember to always love yourself,
